Introducing the Meta Catalog : Tasks : Rebuilding a local catalog

Rebuilding a local catalog

If you delete files from a project, the catalog might contain obsolete data from those files. If you move code from one file to another file, the catalog might still have records pointing to the old location. Catalogs are designed to be disposable. Whenever necessary, you can rebuild a catalog from its definition.
1. Choose Window > Preferences to open the Preferences window.
2. Choose Progress OpenEdge > Meta Catalog in the treeview. The Meta Catalog page appears.
3. Select a catalog from the browse.
4. Choose Rebuild.
The process deletes the existing database and rebuilds it from the definition.
